The Eyre Peninsula is well positioned to facilitate and support a diverse range of significant developments. The region’s economy is diverse with world-leading companies in manufacturing, mining, aquaculture, commercial wild catch fishing, agriculture, industry research, food and tourism.

Into the future the economy will continue to flourish with the mining developments in the region’s Eucla Basin and Gawler Craton. The demand for coastal property investment is escalating with property developers looking to capitalize on the continuing strong demand for coastal land across Eyre Peninsula.

Renewable energy initiatives including energy generation, energy storage systems and water desalination will further enhance the region’s competitiveness, which is due to our natural key advantages of a pristine environment, large geographic area and high energy coastline.

Communities on Eyre Peninsula are committed to strong and sustainable economic growth to ensure that future opportunities are fully realised and that the region is enhanced as an attractive destination for productive long term investment.
